Concerned that his 4-year-old son or dog might get bitten by the venomous copperhead snake living in a woodpile outside his Huntsville home, Sam Billiter grabbed his machete and headed out back to kill it.

As crazy as stuff might be right there, Huntsville Animal Services has warned residents not to approach dangerous snakes on their own.
Meh. Too sensible.
